There are few breaks more synonymous with luxury than Maldives luxury holidays, with the island offering everything visitors would expect from a high-end trip, from white sand to crystal blue seas and amazing accommodation.
The range of luxury hotels on offer on the islands means the decadent feel continues past the days spent lounging under palm trees, drinking cocktails and swimming in impossibly clear waters and into the evening when it is time to retire to bed.
These opportunities for relaxation offered on a holiday to the Maldives make it a popular destination for newlyweds on a honeymoon or other couples looking for a romantic break.
Luxury hotels combined with secluded beaches and restaurants of a particularly high standard mean the destination is ideal for a special holiday guaranteed to rejuvenate and relax visitors.
Among the best high-end accommodation on offer is the island resort of Diva Maldives, which has an exclusive feel helped by only being accessible by a ride in a seaplane.
The suites and villas here offer modern essentials such as flat-screen TVs and DVD players, as well as private pools and high-quality bathrooms.
In the Diva Maldives complex there are six bars, a fitness centre, a spa and two beautiful infinity pools that appear to blend into the stunning skyline.
When people think of luxury island breaks to places like the Maldives, images of wooden bungalows on stilts in shimmering blue water spring to mind – and at the Bandos Island Resort, these dreams come to life.
Located 20 minutes from the airport by speedboat, the resort boasts two restaurants, two bars, a gym, a sauna, two pools and a coffee shop.
A range of outdoor activities including diving, badminton, tennis and snorkelling are also available, making the resort ideal for visitors keen to combine true relaxation with a spot of exercise.
The Anantara Dhigu Resort mixes real luxury with enviable solitude and is ideal for those looking to really get away from it all. Located on its own white sand island, the resort has beachfront villas and suites on stilts over water.
Some are open air, bringing the beautiful outdoors in, and all boast air-conditioning, a private bar or wine cellar, yoga facilities, a sundeck and modern amenities such as TVs and DVD players.
